About this pro

I teach the basics of guitar, music theory, reading music and the history of music from baroque to romanticism. I also teach about the importance of music in relation to psychology and understanding the history of popular music.

Music is the most important thing in the world to me. It provides an emotional outlet and it can bring back memories. I remember it being the only thing I ever liked as a child and I still have the same desire to be involved with the process.

    Ben is awesome! He is technical, patient, funny — everything you could want from a tutor. With him, I was able to learn the skills I wanted to and play favorite songs ASAP!
